Awesome CPU for a lower level system build, Great value!

Summary: For a 1st Generation Intel core I5 processor, it's powerful and fast. I installed this baby on a Zotac H55ITX-A-E M/B with 4 GB of A-Data Ram inside my Lian-Li PC-Q08B case and I'm thrilled with this build. No issues during installation and testing what-so-ever. Even though the TDP is listed at 87W, I love the 900MHz integrated Built-In HD Graphic and Media playback which means I really don't need a video card to have fun.
Summary: This became the processor of choice for an upgrade build for my daughter and son-in-law. We installed this chip on a GIGABYTE GA-H55-USB3 LGA 1156 Intel HDMI USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard, 4 gigs of G-Skill DDR3 1333 ram, Powered by an Antec NEO ECO 520C 520W Continuous Power ATX12V v2.3 / EPS12V 80 PLUS Certified Active PFC Power Supply, and all of it went into a shiny new Thermaltake V3 Black Edition case. The operating system is Windows 7 Professional.
Summary: I just built a PC with an Intel DH55HC board and this sucker is very fast. I only have 4GB RAM with Win7 HP 64-bit, and I love the speed. I bought it cuz people are idiots if they still think they need discrete graphics-less that 1% of PC owners need a big Gfx card for gaming/3D rendering. The rest of us don't but PC makers love to include them or have you upgrade because all their margin is in add-ons. The latest Gen gfx from Intel are great.
Summary: This sucker preforms good bang for the buck. I was very supprized with the preformance. I will be sticking with intel for now on. No issues installing. It is in an intel DH55HC motherboard with 4GB or patroit sector 5 ram.
Summary: Fast and works great for HD playback - without graphics card. Included fan is quiet but still sounds a bit due to vibration. Snabb och fungerar perfekt för HD-uppspelning - utan grafikkort. Medföljande fläkten är tyst men hörs ändå lite pga vibrationer.
Summary: Good performance to be 2 kärnigt and additionally with integrated graphics. Works fine arrangement with Gigabyte GA-H55M-USB3. Recommended for HTPC use with a bit more performance requirements than just watching movies. Bra prestanda för att vara 2 kärnigt och dessutom med integrerad grafik. Funkar finemang med Gigabyte GA-H55m-USB3. Rekommenderas för HTPC användning med lite mer prestandakrav än bara filmvisning.
